Granular Cell Tumor of the Breast: An Unusual Tumor of the Breast Masquerading As Malignancy

Padmapriya Jaiprakash, Kanthilatha Pai.

Abstract
Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare neoplasm of the breast, accounting for <0.1% of breast tumors. GCT may mimic a malignant tumor clinically and radiologically, thereby causing overtreatment in a few cases. We present a case of a 28-year-old woman who presented with a breast lump of short duration, which was highly suggestive of malignancy radiologically. Wide local excision of the lump showed histological features suggestive of GCT, which was confirmed by immunohistochemical studies.

Key words: Granular cell tumor, breast, tumor
